Lady in red! Ms. Patti is looking exquisite these days.

If you haven’t heard, she’ll be hosting her own cooking show, “Patti LaBelle’s Place,” set to debut on the Cooking Channel on December 3rd at 11am EST. We wonder if she'll be sharing her recipe to her Patti Pies that sell like hot cakes -- literally -- in Walmart.
